tribeca 360 wedding

Here’s a wedding I shot with my good friends, creative cohorts, and talented photographers Joseph Spiteri and Kali Taylor.   Shooting in NYC is always exciting, and the  Tribeca 360 in lower Manhattan offers killer views and great ambiance for a unique wedding.  It was a lovely, heart-felt little soiree from start to finish, but…

a stunning wedding collection

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you can book your wedding photographer for your engagement photos, do it! It breaks the ice before your big day and gives you a comfortability you wouldn’t otherwise have on a day when almost everything is stressful. Basically, on your wedding day it translates to:…

crest hollow country club wedding

If you’re looking to hire a wedding photographer, do yourself a favor and start way in advance of your wedding day. Book your photographer to shoot your wedding engagement pictures first. That gives you two advantages: 1) you get to know him or her, which will increase your comfort level during your wedding day, and…

long island wedding

I had the pleasure of shooting this Long Island couple’s wedding earlier this year. One of the things I loved about shooting them was the abandon with which they allowed their love for each other to show during the photo sessions. All brides and grooms are in love, but occasionally it’s hard for it to…

a wedding at st. vincents church

After shooting their engagement photos a year earlier, I was pleased to photograph this bride and groom’s wedding at the St. Vincents Martyr church. Following the nuptials and portrait photography, we had an awesome party at the Grain House At The Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge, NJ.

I worked with this couple over a year before their wedding, taking their engagement photos at the Planting Fields in Oyster Bay, NY. Fast forward and you could find me shooting getting ready pictures of the bride and then photographing their wedding. They were married at their family church, and had the reception at the Sand Castle in…

lake valhalla winter wedding

Here’s another winter wedding photography I did for George Street Photo. The ceremony was inside the warm Lake Valhalla Club. After shooting family portraits while the guests enjoyed cocktails, the bride and groom and I went outside to brave the cold for moody, lakeside pictures in the snow. Take a look at my other photography and creative projects at NJohnston Photography.

greek orthodox wedding

I love traditional weddings. Orthodox Greek, Jewish or Muslim, it doesn’t really matter. I love the culture and history that comes with them, and as a photographer, they usually present beautiful and unique opportunities. The bride and groom were married in their family church in Queens, NY. After the ceremony we did family portraits, and then…

kirkpatrick chapel

I love shooting weddings at Rutger’s historic Kirkpatrick Chapel. The intimate space feels so authentic that I actually lose my sense of time when I’m taking pictures there. Due to it’s popularity, wedding parties are practically lined up at the door, so every time I’ve done portraits there, it’s been rushed. Still, I’m happy with the few…

nicole & keith

Nicole and Keith wanted their engagement photos taken in Hoboken, with the Manhattan skyline in the background, even though their wedding would eventually be on Long Island. On their big day, they had a traditional wedding in the family church. After the ceremony, and despite poor weather, we managed to get some fun portraits at…
